(Nashville Nights #1)
by Erin McCarthy
They’re perfectly in tune—but only when it comes to their music. This sizzling romance from New York Times bestselling author Erin McCarthy follows Nashville’s hottest country music duo as they fight for love in a city where dreams often cost a broken heart.
Self-made singer/songwriter Jolene Hart loves everything about being on top in Nashville. Well, everything except her very public breakup with Chance Rivers, her sexy masculine other half. Once the hottest duo on the scene, they turned Music City on its ear. Now their careers are as cold as their relationship. Which is why their manager has practically locked them in a remote cabin with nothing but a guitar, a bed, and time to do what they do best: make some beautiful music together.
As Nashville royalty, Chance has big boots to fill—and the pressure that comes with ’em. He fell hard for Jolene, but he couldn’t handle the spotlight, the crowds, and the fights that made headlines and killed any notion that love and success could go hand-in-hand. Still, Chance is more than willing to rekindle the one thing that worked: the wild passion behind their hit songs. Soon they’re making up for lost time, in the steamiest ways possible. But Chance finds himself wishing for the impossible: that their intimate hideaway could last forever.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
HEART BREAKER, the first novel in Erin McCarthy’s new series Nashville Nights is about a hot new singer and songwriting duo, Jolene Hart and Chance Rivers. Their first album and tour together was hot and so was their love affair, but then… the very public breakup. Unfortunately, they are contracted to continue to work together. Jolene and Chance have explosive chemistry and the temperaments to match. Jolene especially is not at all happy about being forced to work with Chance and stir up all the hurt of their breakup. The first part of the book they are both dealing with the fact they still have feelings for each other but don’t want to admit it. Each have their own insecurities as to their professional status and this only makes it harder. Once they get past that and admit their feelings, the love and the romance between them really shines through. This is where it gets good and makes up for the rocky beginning.
Erin McCarthy is a favorite author of mine and I have to admit, I had my doubts with this one at first, but she really pulls her characters and storyline together so I was really glad I read through to the end. Excellent finish!
